Apple needs to concede and walk away from this fight. The law has its roots in farmers with tractors that can't be repaired by anyone except an authorized repairman. Individuals are locked out of the opportunity to repair equipment they own without paying someone.
When the check engine light turns on in a car, you can plug in an OBD reader, get a code, refer to a manual and fix the problem. With a tractor, the light turns on or something stops working, but you can't do anything about it yourself. You need to pay an authorized person to tell you what's wrong, pay them to fix it and clear the code. Since the authorized person is the only one that can fix your equipment, they can charge whatever they want.

They've called my wife several times with the scheme. I thought no one would ever fall for it, but then a very gullible coworker of mine took the bait. Fed the scammers all their info. The scammers deleted everything backed up on their iCloud account. Who knows how much personal info they got their hands on.
I should start applying for jobs as a race car driver and sue if anyone hires a younger candidate. I've been driving really fast for over 20 years, so if I'm not hired it must be because of my age and nothing to do with my ability to perform a specific job related to something I have great amounts of experience in.
